When there is a flood, it becomes a race against time to build up efficient water barriers.
The CENO-TUBE is a mobile hose system filled with water that can be used within a short period of time and that offers flood protection for a height up to 2.60 m. Additional material transport or use of heavy equipment is not necessary.
A CENO-TUBE dike can be assembled several times faster than a sandbag dike.
On the left you will find the resources needed to set up a sandbag dike and on the right the ones needed to set up a CENO-TUBE dike.
The CENO-TUBE is a water filled hose dike made from highly resistant membranes.
The 3-component system of the CENO-TUBE consists of three material layers:
The dike body (1) is filled with water, the net cover (2) surrounds the hoses. A protective tarpaulin seals the dike (3). The water pressure in the hoses (1) preloads the net cover (2). The tight net cover forms a stable static system. All modules of a dike chain can be connected together with the net cover.
Only four persons are needed to erect the complete CENO-TUBE system. In case of needed disaster protection, where every minute counts, a safe flood protection system can be installed with a speed of approximately 40-150 m/h, depending on the size of the module. Whether the use of heavy equipment, nor building work or material transport is required to erect the system.
With these features, the CENO-TUBE is up to 92x faster than comparable sandbag solutions.
(1) The hoses of the CENO-TUBE are rolled out with a spool reel.
(2) The hoses are connected to water pump and subsequently filled with water.
(3) The sealing tarpaulin is rolled on top of the filled hoses.
(4) The CENO-TUBE is erected. The water is dammed up.
